Health Minister V S Sivakumar will convene a discussion with the representatives of Chalai Anti-Garbage Plant Action Council here on Thursday to discuss matters regarding the establishment of a waste treatment plant along the Chalai-Attakulangara Bypass.

Protesting against the move to establish a waste treatment plant there, a mass sit-in was organised under the aegis of the action council on November 1, in which hundreds of people from 27 residents’ associations near Chalai participated.

“Our stand has not changed so far. We won’t allow a garbage plant to come up on the TRIDA plot meant for erecting a shopping complex,” said V K Ajithkumar, chairman of the action council. 

Vyapari Vyavasayi Ekopana Samithi Kothuval unit president Kalady Aji said that even if the plant has to be established, it would be allowed only after each ward in the Corporation finds a way to process the waste generated in the wards concerned itself.

“We hope that the final decision would be in favour of the people. A scientific management of the waste generated at Chalai alone would be allowed if a plant has to come up there,” Aji said.
